Humboldt Distillery Small Batch - Certified Organic Spiced Rum
The Humboldt Distillery is the creation of Abe Stevens, a fifth-generation Humboldt native. The small, craft distillery is located in Humboldt, CA among the mighty redwoods and fewer than a dozen miles from the Pacific Coast. Their Spiced Rum is made with organic sugarcane that was grown and milled in the USA. The spirit was double distilled once in a custom column still and then in a pot still. It is wonderfully balanced with bright spice notes and most importantly without the sweet, syrupy flavors found in most Spiced Rums.
The Humboldt Distillery is the creation of Abe Stevens, a fifth-generation Humboldt native. After earning degrees in chemistry and biochemistry from the University of Chicago Stevens worked in the pharmaceutical industry doing research and development. His interests are many and diverse as Stevens also successfully dabbled in real estate investment and was even a tournament poker player. All of these great adventures could not surpass the draw of returning home to create organic, craft spirits. The Humboldt Distillery show great purity and depth. We can't wait to see what Stevens does next.
Brilliant golden color. The nose is far more subtle than expected as it offers scents of fresh fruit compote accented with vanilla bean, allspice, and baked apple. The palate is in full agreement with the nose delivering a fruit-driven core with flanking notes of pretty brown baking spices and sweet vanilla. Medium-bodied with waves of sweet fruit and spice notes while never becoming overly sweet.
How to Serve
Sip chilled over ice with a lime wedge or serve with ginger beer.
